Kirstyn Thomas also with 3 home runs, 9 runs, 8 hits, .889, 10 rbi.

There are no surprises against that sort of competition... no offense

There are high level hitters who struggle against that level of pitching....

There are hitters who can only hit that caliber of pitching

Some hit all kinds of pitching

I did say, "so far". I don't think anyone here expected her to start, so, yes, she is a surprise. She's added a triple against Miami (OH).

Thomas with her 4th home run (3 rbi). Now hitting .909 (10 for 11).

Thomas with her 5th home run and Atlee and Bates each with Grand Slams in the same inning (6th), as UW beats Bradley 15-0.

Wouldn't be shocked if Thomas is the NPOW (national player of the week) after all that

Hee has a big bat, she will contribute greatly to Washington's offense.  She has always performed against excellent competition.

Well, you do have Alvelo striking out 27 in 14 innings and giving up 0 runs, and I think only 5 hits as well...

I look at it as a make up for throwing the toughest schedule in the country by far last year and not even being an AA. Besides I don't think a duck fan has much to talk about regarding "kiddie schedules" when you look at the beginning of last year.

Pathetic job by the Pac yet again.
Alvelo? Whatever. No one else was really dominant.

But to give UW both slots? Sanders, Harper...a few others...would have made some semblance sense, instead of doubly rewarding five games against teams with an unsightly average 2017 RPI of 166

But Thomas? Sanders and even Harper more deserving, and that is just the start of the list


Which Sanders?

Her ability to go to the backhand or forehand away from first and and sling bullets ... blows my mind

Didn't KT hit a game winning home run last year in game 3 vs the ducks? There's still plenty of season left. Like it or not, Alvelo and KT had the numbers this week.

Curious if you had the same reaction to Mack and Elish being player/Fr of the week Mar 7, 2017? The opponents' average rpi was 125 but that's because of 2 games against uic-bait MO. The other teams were the powerhouse SFA (rpi 192), Butler (177), Maryland (180).

Sanders line
OPS: 2.052, BA: .462, 4HR, 11RBI, 6 games.

Thomas' line
OPS: 2.552, BA: .688, 5HR, 13 RBI, 5 Games

KT's numbers were video game like against lesser competition. Sanders' were great and she would have been a fine choice.

Well, 40 at that level doesn't make much difference to a WA or OR. It's the difference between San Diego and UC Riverside. Maryland also got run ruled by Co St and lost to Ohio St 22-0. MO lost to Ill St and UIC.

As far as 5 game stretches against crappy teams, AZ had one last year against rpi average 230 teams. You don't always get to select your exact opponents. Incidentally, Floyd and Harper were the PiOW and FrOW that week.

Whether you support schedule being an important component of these awards or not (I do), if you're not upset about the OR and AZ selections last year I don't understand the consternation about wa's selection this year. I've accused these guys of being idiots many times, but at least they appear to be consistent.

Absolutely looking forward to the season as well (unless wa loses to OR. Then it will suck :))

I have no clue what the other performances were. Sometimes, a cupcake stats explosion is utterly unchallenged, and I really have no beef

While the RPI formula appears to have some flaws and often ticks a lot of people off,  like it because it generally does not reward a team for playing a weak schedule (although team and individual stats often inflate).
